When we first drove up, I admit my stomach and heart sank. It looked like a drive up motel, like any of those run down places you'd see when you're driving around run down areas. We checked in and the little check in motel house was cute enough - had Stash tea and hot water flowing at all times, and they give out cookies in the afternoon (though they're just from Costco, nothing special). The breakfast is also Costco muffins (yuck), so we skipped that too.
Costco catering aside, I entered the room and was so surprised - the ceiling went all the way to the top of the roof. They smartly put blinds up so you never see the outside of your room. It's a bit small and claustrophobic, but it's very very nicely done inside like a mid-upper range hotel. Aveda bath products too. The shower itself is kind of cramped, as is the bathroom. They also have a minifridge.
I respect the clever way they redid the rooms, to make this a very unique option, though of course if I had the option to stay at a nicer hotel for the same price in the area, I would have chosen the other option. At $250/night, this was not cheap. It's a super expensive and nice neighborhood - I *highly* recommend staying here if you're just going to use it as a base and only sleep here. I think you'd go a bit crazy if you spent more than an hour or two during the day in the motel/hotel room.
